Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Johannsson, Durkin, and more

Hammarby continues its good run of form in Swedish Allsvenskan play on Sunday with Aron Johannsson scoring his first league goal for the club.

Johannsson needed only four minutes to score in Sunday’s eventual 2-1 win over Djurgarden, despite leaving the match after 21 minutes. The U.S. Men’s National Team forward also won one duel besides finishing off a good attacking opportunity in the early minutes.

With the victory, Hammarby moved to sixth in the league table. A trip to Norrkoping is next on the schedule, but Johannsson could miss out after his latest injury.

Elsewhere, Dillon Powers made his Scottish Premiership debut for Dundee United while Chris Durkin and Sint-Truiden earned a 1-0 win in their season opener vs. Gent. Malik Tillman and Konrad de la Fuente both dressed in Champions League play, but didn’t play for dominant wins for their respective clubs.
